Enjoyed this at the brewery from a freshly tapped keg (so I was told). Initial thoughts were of Enjoy By, but the more I enjoyed this one, the more complex I found it. Expecting a simple "hop bomb" this collaboration was much more than that! There was more malt than expected and it pleasantly co-existed with the hops making for an extremely well-balanced ale...for Stone I mean. Suffice it to say, this bad boy was a hop monster, just a well behaved monster! Another great beer from Mr. Steele! Prost!

Hap on tap last night at the Corner Slice.Poured an orange tinged medium golden with a thinner quick to fade white head atop.Floral notes stood out most in the nose along with underlying citrus,not big and in your face but nice enough.The hops are more leafy fruity with not a whole lot of sharpness to them on the palate,goes down pretty with a little alcohol presence as it warmed.A little lighter in the feel than I was expecting.Eh I was excited to see this beer on tap but it underwhelmed me a little.

Pours an effervescent gold with 2 ,fingers of pearl white head. Good lacing & average head retention

S: Breadyness, pineapple, & other tropical fruit notes, plus booze; opens up once warm

T: Breadyness, grapefruit, mango & pineapple & little bit of pear up front. Some lemon grass notes, a little grapefruit & bready sweetness as this warms. Finishes with lemongrass, grapefruit & pineapple & pear

MF: Medium bodied/chewy with slight carbonation, nice balance

Easy drinker, another hop beast from Stone, give me more!
